What is this?

It is causing a dreadful problem everywhere. Pull it out after you have admired it. Seriously.

It is not native and it crowds out native plants.

Anyone know where I can get well-rotted manure in Lewisham, South East London?

But do check if you buy raw manure that the horses haven't been stabled on shavings - they don't rot down.

Have you tried Googling Riding schools in Lewisham? I did and came up with three. Only you can say if they are near to you.

Oh dear! Is this the beginning of the end?

As I understood it ash dieback affects saplings. Ash has always been prone to having the odd branch die for no apparent reason. It is notorious for suddenly dropping a large branch.

I hope there is nothing seriously wrong with your trees. I like ash though it is a dreadful seeder. OTOH I do not like sycamore and its habit of seeding everywhere.

Beware of using a rotovator if you have dandelions. Where you have one root you will end up with multiple plants as every chopped bit will grow.

New turf lawn with fox and cat problem!

Are you sure it isn't badgers getting into the garden? Badger poo is more like cat's than fox's.

Badgers certainly dig well. I think I would set up a motion-sensitive camera to make sure. A low electric fence all round the garden would be a good solution.

And did the seeds germinate OK?

What has happened 2 my Cucumbers?

Growing beside each other would not do this. Was it fresh seed out of a packet from a reputable firm, or did you buy the plants?

Yes, I would go with Nut. Pot the seeds up in a well draining compost and leave them outside in all weathers to stratify naturally. Perhaps someone that knows will say whether the seeds are best sown fresh in which case you got lucky with your first seedlings.

I only mentioned the 'fridge as you didn't mention what you had already done.
